. to me there's something really un-american about this whole process. it's ridiculous to force moms and dads and students and workers and elderly folks to wait four hours to cast a ballot? it turns out minorities suffered the longest waits. the afl-cio reports that minorities were more likely to wait at least 30 minutes to vote. 22% of african-americans and 24% of hispanics waited the longest. threat one election official is now apologizing. these were the early voting lines at lee county election headquarters in ft. myers, florida. on election night some voters were still in line long after the polls closed. the last ballot was cast at 1:30 a.m. in the morning, that would be on wednesday. here's something we haven't seen before. the election supervisor gave this emotional apology. >> i want to close by apologizing to the voters of lee county, to those who waited in long lines -- excuse me -- during eight days of early voting. to those who waited in long lines at the precincts, and to those who got discouraged and left without voting. >> florida counties say these didn't have enough

kornacki. part of this story, then, involves the potential nomination of susan rice, the u.n. amambassador, to replace hillary clinton at the state democratic. it's susan rice who a lot of republicans have decided lied to the public. they allege was executing some kind of intentional cover-up plot by the administration. i don't know how that would work or what the cover-up would be. be that as it may, that's what republicans are saying. you have john mccain and lindsey graham both saying if her nomination is put forward, they will filibuster it. are there any indications that that would become an official republican party position, because if the republicans unite, they would have the 40 votes to kill it by filibuster. >> there is a lot of opposition among republicans to a potential susan rice nomination. people are not actively talking about filibuster, although that's the obvious presumption if you talk about members trying to block something like this. in some was they are saying that she was schoezen bied white house to be the public face in the early days after the attack to talk abou

, there is no blockade as it were, but the u.n. workers have left, the relief workers have left. what is the situation in terms of just daily life now in gaza? >> well, there are definitely shortages on a few fronts. one the fuel shortage. the fuel shortage has been predominantly supplied by israel. we understand there is a shortage of that in this territory, particularly in the northern part. that affects the electricity supply as well. and it also affects people's ability to cook gas and such. there are shortages of food because the farmers are unable to access their land. we spent the part today in a business busy market asking venders what they noticed. prices have gone up through the roof because it's more expensive and difficult. hospitals here are strained but they say right now are fine in terms of the medical supplies. of course if there is a ground invasion and a spike in civilian casualties they will be very much under strain as we've seen in the past. andrea? >> our team there, martin fletcher and amman mohyeldin, thank you so much. joining me for our daily fix, "washington post" columnist

question today, today the talking points that were given to u.n. ambassador susan rice after the benghazi attack, those talking points were published. >> yes. >> and if those talking points are what she was given to say, she hued essentially exactly to what she was briefed to say by the intelligence agency. so on the matter of her and whether she's the architect of the great coverup and can't be secretary of state and all these other things, i felt like today that settled it factually. >> i absolutely think it settled it factually but i also think -- i guess i want to distinguish between two different trends that happened in the modern republican party. there's this conspiracy mongering and this believing your own ridiculousness that i think happens. dick morris was calling into that agenda 21 briefing. down in georgia. i mean the guy -- that's a fairly prominent person in the american right these days. >> herding us in to the point with them. >> right. so there's that at one end. then there's the nihilistic obstruction. and the war on susan rice seems to be more in that latter category.
